As moms, beauty products are usually something we feel we desperately need, yet don’t have time for, and honestly have no idea where to start with.
I find that a new hair or makeup accessory or tool can make you feel motivated and confident to spend some time on yourself!
Part of self care is taking time (even 10 minutes!) to do your hair or makeup, take an extra hot shower or even just sit with your feet in the tub. Don’t take this lightly, a few minutes can totally rejuvenate you and make you feel ready to conquer the day!
If that resonates with you, I imagine that other moms you know feel the same way!
So when you are looking for gift ideas for yourself or other moms in your life, take a look at this list below to inspire you to show some extra love whether it be for Mother’s Day, Valentines, Christmas, birthday, OR just because!
If you see something you like, add it to your wish list or buy it for those hard to shop for, don’t-need-anything women you know!
Every item on this list has great reviews, is less than $40 (most under $20!) and available on Amazon. Shopping for gifts just became easy, peasy!
Beauty Gifts for Any Mom
Everyone loves brand new mascara. Get waterproof if she’s an active lady or lives in a warm climate. Professionals recommend this brand of mascara yet it’s so affordable!
This is my favorite brand of makeup brushes and you will find a variety of sets and individuals on Amazon.
Ever since starting to use a beauty blender sponge to spread my foundation and concealer I haven’t looked back. You can apply it more smoothly and more quickly with these! One of them lasts me for months as long as I clean it with soap+ water a couple times a week. The key to these is to soak it in water and then wring it out before using it to apply your makeup. That way it doesn’t suck up the product. This is an awesome stocking stuffer!
The number one complaint from moms painting their own nails? “I always smudge them because I’m not patient enough to let them dry before doing stuff around the house!” This little red bottle will solve her problem! It’s a top coat that dries super fast and hard so that she can use her regular nail polish and then seal it quickly with a swipe of this top coat! Efficient and it WORKS! (You might also check out their Insta-dri colors too!)
I don’t have one of these yet, but I’ve been tempted to get one! The bristles are specially designed to help untangle your hair without breaking or damaging hair strands. Sign me up!
No matter what her style, there’s tons of makeup bag options for your recipient! These make cute gift “boxes” too. Grab your bag and stuff with a few fun gifts that fit inside!
When I think of pampering myself at home, a hot bath, face mask and new toenail polish top the list! I love the natural ingredients and listed benefits of this Bentonite Clay mask!
Whether for small spaces or large ones, there’s tons of makeup and beauty organizers that will work for any gal! Travel ones are so nice to have on hand as well!
My bathroom doesn’t have the best lighting, so a vanity mirror is definitely something I need! If I had the room I’d definitely grab a large fold out mirror, but the smaller round versions are classic which I also love.

Hair dryer and straighter in one?! Yes please! Cut down on half of your bathroom time by using one of these babies!
The Revlon-One Step Hair styler is super popular among moms because it dries and styles your hair in one step!
How often do you wash your makeup brushes? I won’t shock you with how often I’ve ever done it. Oops! I like this tool for washing my brushes. Takes all the effort out and makes it oh-so-easy!
This is my favorite brand of curling iron EVER. I just won’t buy other brands any more. Mine last forever and get super hot (if I want it to). The swivel cord is a must and keeps your cords from getting super tangled. New hair tools are one of my favorite beauty gifts!

If a straightener brush isn’t your thing, this straightener will work wonders on your dry hair, smoothing it out while adding some shine. You can also curl your hair using narrow straighteners like this 1”. Just go to YouTube and prepare to be wowed!
A quality hair dryer does the best work with the least amount of damage to your hair. One of my good friends just bought this one and is loving it! The high setting is HIGH and the cool setting works super well!
Do any of these hair & makeup gifts grab you? Which are you tempted to buy for yourself or already did?
